BEIJING (Reuters) - China's top leaders reiterated pledges to keep the country's economic growth within a reasonable range this year while forging ahead with reforms in all fronts.

China will maintain policy continuity this year, the Politburo, the country's top decision-making body, said in a statement after a meeting.

There is good base for China to maintain medium to high speed growth over the long term, said the statement published on the central government website, www.gov.cn.
